Review

"Told with sparkling wit . . . this erotic collection of some of the world's favorite fairy tales is nothing short of brilliant." -- ARomanceReview.com

About the Author

Nancy Madore achieved enormous critical acclaim with her 'Enchanted' series with Harlequin, which includes EnchantedEnchanted Again and Enchanted Dreams.

The Ethics of Judge Nadeau represents a diversion for Madore that was brought about by true life events. In her first work of non-fiction, Madore unravels a drama that is much stranger than fiction. This true life account of sex, betrayal and corruption within our legal system is sure to shock, provoke and amuse.

In her exciting new 'Legacy of the Watchers' series, Madore incorporates her love of ancient history and mythology into a modern day mystery that connects the dots from the past to the present--and reveals an explosive future. There are three installments in this speculative fiction series so far: The Hidden OnesPower of Gods and Masquerade. Madore is currently working on The Fourth Trumpet

I'm a big fan of the "fairytales retold" genre, and after reading reviews I had high expectations of this one. The writing style reminds me of victorian erotica, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but themewise felt like mellow erotica for the comfortably feminist gentle reader. I guess my personal kink factor is a little higher than the target audience. This is NOT the style/concept of the Anne Rice Sleeping Beauty, which is vastly higher on the sexually adventurous intensity scale. That all being said, this is a fine starter novel for a Lady's introduction to erotic reading. It has comfortably familliar fairytale themes, a self-empowerment message, nothing too shocking in language or content, and a couple of quite good scenes. I would definitely reccommend it to friends who have tried little erotica before, and might want a gentle introduction to pique thier curiosity.

I absolutely adored Nancy Madore's Enchanted. When we take into consideration the fact that fairy tales have been used to tame women's sexuality and to instill negative ideals about beauty and image, Madore's reclaimation of the genre to free women's thinking about sex and sexuality is awe-inspiring. I like the way she takes some fantasies that we have been taught to think of as taboo and others that have been deemed just a little naughty and makes them come to life in a positive and powerful way. The most postive aspect of this collection, however, is the underlying messages about women's beauty images, the beauty-myth and self-esteem. The collection is a must read for every woman who wants to more fully experience her own erotic power.

I really liked this book, mostly because it takes old fairy tales and makes them new again--and what girl doesn't love fairy tales? I thought the erotica was sensual and the writing very good. It's a must have for women, but you don't necessarily have to read it at bedtime! It's definitely romantic.

I loved this collection of erotic retelling of popular fairytales. Bedtime Stories for Women reminds me of Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty novels in that they turn a sweet fairytale into something extremely naughty and pleasurable (so to speak) to read. Nancy Madore renames the titles of some of the most memorable stories out there. The author also adds some original stories with a cartoonish setting. My favorites are "The Empress' New Clothes," "Cat and Mouse," "Goldilocks and the Three Barons," "Mirror on the Wall," "Beauty and the Beast," and "East of Sun." Not only are the stories smolderingly erotic, they also empower women to be uninhibited and independent. Some of the stories also deal with issues about one's physical appearance. "The Ugly Duckling" delves into the aforementioned issue in a profound, thought-provoking way. Bedtime Stories for Women is one of the best erotic short-story collections I have read in a long time. Ms. Madore is an excellent writer and I look forward to reading more of her stuff.

Looking around this site I stubbled upon this book and being a lover of fairy tales I thought it couldn't hurt to check this one out..and I'm glad I did it was well worth the money. The fairy tales in this book are some of my most favorites and the twists that the author put on them were wonderful. I was very surprised and couldn't put the book down.

The way the author describes everything in the stories is excellent not crude or nasty, but in a way that makes your blush a bit as well as get your imagination going. I had no trouble putting myself in different parts of the stories.

I do hope that the author writes more and does as well as she did on this one.

What a wonderful book! I loved this grown up version of the fairy tales. The stories, the writing and the fantasies were perfect. It is hard to single out one story over the other, but I particulary enjoyed "cat and mouse", which was a wonderfully written story about the sensuality in the battle of the sexes. "Beauty and the beast" was another of my favorites, and after reading those steamy scenes with the beast, I wouldn't have wanted the prince after that either! Another fabulous story was "bluebeard", who doesn't try to kill his wife in this version (unless she dies from pleasure). Then there was "goldilocks and the three barons" which was hilarious until it suddenly became quite hot and erotic. I even loved "the ugly duckling", which was not as sensual as the other stories, but made up for that in romance. I really appreciated the ideas and observations about women that the author scattered throughout the stories. They felt like kind words from a dear friend. I highly recommend this book to women of all ages.

BEDTIME STORIES FOR WOMEN are guaranteed to give rise to your senses...and your libido. You will never read fairytales the same way after reading one of these stories. My personal favorites were "Beauty and the Beast," "Cat and Mouse," "Goldilocks and the Three Barons," "East of the Sun and West of the Moon," and "Snow White in the Woods." Each had me fantasizing, wanting more and still leaving much to the imagination.
Ms. Madore expresses sensuality/sexuality without using the vulgarity or crass words that have began to plague modern day erotica. BEDTIME STORIES FOR WOMEN are told in an eloquent manner that is insatiable; they may even tempt you to want to create your own ending. Curl up with your significant other and prepare to read him a bedtime story. I must warn you that these stories are not meant to put him to sleep, but to wake him instead. I look forward to reading other erotica stories written by Ms. Madore; I'm sure I won't be disappointed by her fairytales with a twist.
